Reports from Italy have it that Nigerian youngster Victor Osimhen has agreed personal terms with Serie A outfit Napoli and now ready to seal a deal that will see him play at the club until 2025.
It was gathered that Napoli are now working to complete last details with Lille and his agents then the deal will be finally completed.
GOAL are reporting that the Nigeria international has decided to team up with the Parthenopeans and the deal could be completed as early as Thursday.
The 21-year-old is expected to complete a staggering €81million move to the club as team manager Gennaro Gattuso is highly interest in him.
It is understood that the Super Eagles striker visited the club's training facilities alongside manager Gennaro Gattuso and president Aurelio De Laurentiis a fortnight ago.
But the 21-year-old is reportedly skeptical about the issue of racism in Italy which has been suggested to be a stumbling block on his move so far.
Reports claim that the Lille star had spoken to the club's assistant club captain Kalidou Koulibaly and Senegalese defender reassured him there is no racism issue in Italy.
It has also been suggested that Napoli director Cristiano Guintoli met Lille president Gerard Lopez and Osimhen’s intermediaries for more face-to-face negotiations on Monday, July 13.
